Design & build of a two-storey college facility for 350 students.

McLaughlin & Harvey were appointed as Design & Build Principal Contractor for the delivery of a new Fife College building at the Levenmouth Campus. The scope of the works included the construction of a new 3000m2 two storey college facility for a projected roll of 350 students with associated services, infrastructure and hard & soft landscaping.

The Levenmouth college development comprised of an Engineering Workshop, Hairdressing Salon, Training Kitchen, General Teaching Facilities, Maths Lab, Staff Accommodation and Café area. The campus has been designed to support young people in getting real-life work skills to help develop the skills they need to succeed in job applications.

The building was constructed via a structural steel frame sitting on concrete pad foundations. The Building is clad in a mixture of facing brick, rain screen cladding and insulated render.

The internal fit out of the College comprises of metal stud plasterboard faced partitions, a mixture of plasterboard and laying grid ceilings and both carpet and vinyl floor finishes.

Mechanical services are fed from a roof top plantroom with Heat Recovery, air handling units and 2 gas fired boilers. Electrical services are supplied via a new incoming mains cable into a switch panel stored within the switch room.

Young People

The construction of the Fife College Levenmouth Campus presented numerous opportunities for the delivery of educational experience including career days for the college students, practical interview experience, and practical work experience. Additionally, a college student’s artwork was displayed on the site hoarding, and the production of a short film was created by the students on the choosing of subjects. A specially designed time capsule, made by high school pupils studying at Fife College, was also buried to mark the start of building work. The time capsule was filled with things that relate to life today donated by the students.
